My self-summary
Let me be the one who will:
Give you that smile on your face that just won’t go away
Put that pep in your step like you’re floating on air
Fill your heart so full of love that it hurts
Make you feel calm, complete and connected
Light up whenever you walk into the room
Spoil the ‘bejeebers’ out of you.
I am an optimist knowing that there is someone who would like a happy and healthy relationship and is ready to enjoy all the good things life has to offer.
I am happy in my life and look forward to meeting you to do things together like sports, movies, traveling, biking, hiking and enjoying fun times with family and friends.
I value my independence and respect that in my partner. I prefer to be with someone who seeks quality over quantity.; a ‘one woman man’ for sure.
I’m definitely a windows open versus air conditioner…unless the humidity and snow make it unbearable. I’m also ‘wash and wear’, relatively low maintenance. (Tho I love to glam up for certain occasions.)
I will know my new lover by the humor in his eyes and the warmth in his heart.

Will have:
the ability to make me feel loved, cherished, adored, beautiful and desired and keep me giggling and on my toes with your humor and quick wit
your own interests, friends and hobbies
great character and be an honest and loyal man
Your voice will jumpstart my heart and be the person I can’t wait to hurry home to at the end of the day.
You will be well-read and interested in the world around you.
You will be emotionally available and well-balanced; a ‘one woman man’ for sure.

We are NOT demanding perfection. Our problems, difficulties and disasters have made us stronger and more beautiful inside.
We will snuggle in front of the fireplace during the first snowfall…walk hand in hand on the beach at sunset.
If we didn’t know how old we were we would guess 30 something as we enjoy all adventures, sing out loud, dance till our feet hurt and spend hours in bed sharing thoughts, feelings and bodies.
What I’m doing with my life
Since retirement in 2010 I have been a 'travel'in fool'. (Florida..Daytona, Marco Island , Boston, New York , Nantucket, Iowa and a 22 day Mediterranean cruise.)
I love spending LOTS of time with family and friends. I do volunteer work at Meijer Gardens and my 'old' elementary school.
I’m really good at
I love reading aloud to children using different voices for different characters. (Could do that with adult books as well... lol) Listening to others and doing whatever I can to help those in need are skills I continue to try to improve to perfection.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a very expressive face. Love to smile and look into your eyes as you speak. Because of my love of the sun I usually keep a 'tan glow' all 12 months. I've been told I have a 'sparkle' about me. Being happy is a way of life for me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Best book ever: "The Shack"
Love reading anything by Elin Hilderbrand (hence the trip to Nantucket) Smut is my genre of choice... love all the romance.
I am a TRUE LOVER of chick flicks. Hallmark movies always make me cry.
A good documentary that leads to great discussion is also very enjoyable. Those action thrillers are OK if you don't mind if I close my eyes during the violence and blood.
Music is soothing to my to opera... love it.
Love of cooking has led to love of eating. Not much I don't enjoy.
The six things I could never do without
my faith
good food (cooking)
human touch
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The true meaning of life. (kind'of deep)
Where shall I travel to next?
What should I fix for dinner?
Will my 'Prince Charming' or 'Knight in Shining Armor' or any 'good guy' show up on my doorstep?
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, on a trip, reading a good 'smut' novel, surfing the web, watching a good movie and if I'm really lucky... out on a date with a fine gentleman.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You will have to ask me this in person. (Trying to capture your interest here... :) )
You should message me if
You find my profile of interest and would like to learn more about me.
